Why do I need a Timeline?

By | Posted on

So many brides ask, why do I need a timeline? You’ve invested a lot of time and money into your wedding. It’s important to have a timeline for many reasons, if nothing else as a sense of communication for all parties involved in your day.

What needs to be incorporated in a timeline? A lot of your hired professionals will do a timeline for their portion of involvement with you for the day, but don’t necessarily think or contact other professionals involved to incorporate their involvement into the timeline. It is essential to have all professionals involvement built into the timeline so that the whole flow of the day in visible.

Additionally, not only should the professionals for the wedding/reception be built into the timeline, but also having the entire day for the bride, groom and bridal party built in. Items I typically include is wake-ups, good morning calls, showers, hair and make-up. Make sure to include items like having some time for mimosas, pictures and fun, getting dressed and additional pictures. Also build in travel time and expect the unexpected with travel and build a few extra minutes into your plan.

Don’t forget to include the professionals who may not play an actual role in the wedding and reception, but have preparations on the day of like your baker, decorator for linens and centerpieces, and florist. They will all need time for delivery and set-up.

If you are a DIY bride, make sure you even build the day before the wedding for set-up.This way if you will be doing prep the day before you are not forgetting anything. It’s also good to keep a checklist, just like when you went off to camp. That list will include the items that may need to be transported for your wedding set-up like table numbers, toasting flutes, cake server and favors and possibly many other items.

So again, ask yourself, why do I need a timeline? How can you possibly live without it! Hopefully, you have hired an experienced planner to help with getting this prepared and executed for you. A planner will allow you to relax and enjoy the day while they take care of the details for you.

Day of Coordinator

By | Posted on

I hired Kim as a day of coordinator for my wedding day because I knew that I would need someone to handle the small details I couldn’t. I knew I would hire her during our consultation when she went above and beyond to answer questions I had. Throughout this whole process Kim was there for me with whatever I needed to make my day perfect and in the end it was just that! I give Kim and her te the highest recommendation! Thank you so much!

Manic Monday’s

I would like to invite our friends, family and followers to our new Manic Monday’s that will be hosted through our Facebook page every Monday evening from 8 – 9 pm. During these sessions you will be able to get your wedding and/or event planning questions answered.

Like your teacher always said, if you have a question, there are probably five other people with that same question, so post your question up on our Manic Monday’s sessions and get it answered for you and those other five people. The Manic Monday’s events are not only designed to get your questions answered, but to also elaborate and build discussions around your questions.

We started the event last night and had a few great questions including what are some of the most overlooked items for a wedding and what are gift ideas for Ring Bearers. Dig in, follow the event every Monday and even post your question. You may need just an opinion on an idea you have or may need an answer to something that you just have no idea about.

That’s why Manic Monday’s have been created to help you take your wedding or event to the next level, get those details in order and provide you peace of mind while you are in the midst of planning.

Here is the link to next week’s online chat — make sure to join us, invite your friends, share it on your page!

Hiring the Right Person

By | Posted on

As a bride, it is important to make sure that you are hiring the right person for the jobs that you have for your big day. There are so many aspects when you are planning your event, you need to think of everything, from planning and venue to photography and your DJ. How do you know who to count on, who to put in charge and who will be there for you to help with all the small details, planning and execution.

You should begin by deciding what vendors you need and deciding on the budget that you will need to hire those vendors. You should also decide on what services you will need for those vendors to complete for you for your event. This can help to determine the package that you will end up selecting from each of these vendors.

Still you may ask, how do you know who is the right person for the job that you have? You need to draft questions for each of these roles, o when you find vendors that are of interest in hiring, you ask all the right questions based on your needs for the event. Additionally, you should make sure that you ask all the vendors that you interview the same set of questions, so you are comparing equally. You may find in the interview process, that you really click with a vendor. This is a very important aspect, as you should feel quite comfortable with all your vendors, but you should also be secure in knowing that the vendors have conducted these duties for others before and can successfully carry these out for you as well.

Check references, check their reviews on websites that are not their own, do Google searches on the vendors as well to search for anything that may not be the perfect referral. Keep in mind that every vendor will most likely have a not perfect referral, but you should filter through to make sure you are comfortable with your selection.

Finally, ensure that the vendor(s) you work with meet with you to review every detail of the wedding that they will need to be involved in and have everything they need to complete the event to your specifications. You should be in contact with the vendor at least one week in advance, if you have not already been in contact with them to review any last minute changes in the details to the day. Also provide a contact for them for the day of the event that is not the bride or groom that they can reach out to in an emergency. Keep in mind if you are the bride or groom, that you will most likely not have your phone with you to check throughout the day.

So hiring the right person for the job is so important to ensure that your day moves both smoothly and efficiently. If you for some reason feel you need assistance in planning or selecting vendors, a certified wedding planner/coordinator would be able to assist with finding those qualified vendors for you.

Congratulations – It’s a Bridal Shop

By | Posted on

Most parents wait to hear, congratulations it’s a boy or it’s a girl, for me Congratulations, it’s a bridal shop!

I have dreamed about this day forever, waiting for the opportunity to come along and allow me to open my bridal shop. Unfortunately, I am not opening as Kleinfeld’s, but I am opening as Consider the Dress, which will sell both new and consignment dresses in the Parma, Ohio area. The shop will be located at 5900 Ridge Road on the second floor. We are located right above Guyfs Pizza, next to Colozza’s Bakery and across from Saint Charles.

The bridal shop will carry a mix of both new and consignment dresses. Our hopes is to make having the dress of your dreams within the realms of your budget. Every bride should have the wedding of her dreams and having a tight budget can definitely interfere with that, especially when she starts looking at dresses. Consider the Dress will look to provide dresses and accessories to brides at reasonable rates.

Brides can bring in their dresses to Consider the Dress for review and pricing. Dresses must be cleaned, in good condition and within the last 5 years to be accepted. The dress can be new or worn, but will need to be cleaned and in good condition. We can also help brides with selling jewelry, veils, boleros, and undergarments.

Please feel free to contact us to schedule an appointment to discuss selling your dress and accessories at 216-926-2897 or kzahnke@consideritdoneevents.net for further information.

Our shop is looking to open sometime between the beginning of June and mid July, 2016.

We look forward to working with you!
